Can you change a child’s life?

A campaign to find new families for some of the most vulnerable children in the Welshpool area is being launched.

National Adoption Week kicks off next week and the Mid and West Wales Adoption Service is launching the hashtag #SupportAdoption with a campaign to demystify the adoption process while reflecting the challenges of adoptive parenting and encouraging people to consider becoming adoptive parents.

The service welcomes applications from people from all walks of life but is particularly keen to hear from people interested in adopting sibling groups and older children.

Cllr Graham Brown, Powys County Council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, said: “Many people rule themselves out as they do not think they have got what it takes. The truth is that all kinds of people make good adoptive parents and it doesn’t matter whether you are married, single or co-habiting, with or without children of your own.

“We’re appealing to those interested to come forward and find out more. It is important to have space not just in your home, but in your life as well. Other important qualities include patience, flexibility, a good sense of humour and ‘stickability’.”
